Under the Branches

Another shot from the big snow storm. The weight of the snow had these branches touching the ground. As I was walking back from taking yesterday’s photo, I…

Into the Woods

This shot is looking out into the woods behind my parent’s back yard. Again, it’s hard to believe we had over a foot of snow a week ago…

Lunch Time

What a difference a few days can make. In Friday’s photo I mentioned that after I setup the camera in front of the window the birds flew off…

Cold Dinner

I looked out the window and two birds were feeding at the bird feeder. I ran upstairs to grab the camera and tripod. Got it all set up…

iSanta

I suppose Santa would be the first to have the most current electronic toys. Here he’s sporting an iPhone. I’m sure music comes in handy when you’re flying…

Ornamental

Yes, the objective of this shot was to try and get the Quest Eternal statue inside the top of the ornament. It looks as if he is just…

Slippery When Wet

I didn’t quite get outside early enough when I was taking pictures. I love the look of a snow covered road. As you can see this road had…

Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow

We had the first big snow storm of the season. It started on Friday- being non-essential personnel we were given the day off (sometimes it’s nice not being…

Live Nativity

Isn’t she cute and what a little actor she was. No, I’m not talking about the little girl playing Mary, although she was cute also. This horse really…

JB Baker Blacksmith Shop II

It was hard to take a shot inside the JB Baker Blacksmith Shop due to so many people crowding in to warm up from the freezing temperature. After…

Pope’s Tavern

Many of the buildings were nicely decorated for Holidays in Halifax but I thought that Pope’s Tavern looked especially pretty. This is the location of the Senior Center…

Follow the Candlelit Road

Lining the road from the School, to the Town Hall, to the Congregational Church, to the Country Store, to the Historical Museum were these candle lit bags. While…

Toy Land Ice Sculpture

Saturday was Holidays in Halifax. Every year they have an ice sculpture masterpiece. Here you can see it was Toy Land themed. A train in the foreground, an…

Cracked Red Barn

I really liked the look of this red barn, even though it was falling apart…it had character. You can actually see the snow falling in this image. I…

Pineneedles

This is how I’d feel if I had snow dumped on me. This branch looks as if every needle shot straight out when the cold hit it. Winter…

Frozen Food Cart

Now that I look at this shot I think I should have taken it from further away. What caught my eye was that this cart was all alone…

Snowberry

When it snows the sky is gray and everything is covered in a blanket of white. The slightest colors seem to jump out of the scenery. I love…

The First Snowfall

I decided last week that I would put aside the rest of the photos I had of Plimoth Plantation (I’m sure they’ll pop up again) and move onto…

A Moment in History

While I was in the English Village I saw one of the Native staff members walking through. I assumed his shift was over and he was going to…

Thatched Roofs

All that hard work of carving out the planks and it could all be destoyed with a single spark. “The earliest homes were made with thatched roofs. Occasionally,…

I’m the Axe Man

This man was working hard at splitting this large piece of wood to carve it into a piece of clapboard. He was kind enough to stop and talk…

Until the cows come home

Thank goodness for the internet or I’d have nothing historical to put under these pictures. Of course I have no idea if what I’m finding is true but…

Plimoth Plantation

In 1628, Plymouth was visited by the Dutchman named Isaac de Rasieres, and he wrote a more detailed description of what he saw: “New Plymouth lies on the…
